7/9: Sea Star Dissection 3-5pm
Although they are commonly called starfish, these animals aren't fish, which is why they are more commonly referred to as sea stars. Sea stars belong to the group of animals called echinoderms and are related to sea urchins, sand dollar, and sea cucumbers. During this dissection, you will look at the external and internal anatomy of a sea star. These Lab EdVentrues are designed for parents and children to spend time together learning and discovering. Participants must be at least 8 years old and be accompanied by an adult. Reservations are required and seating is limited.
Cost: $30 for non-members and $27 for members."
